Question

What ICD-10 code is appropriate for normal hearing bilaterally with no other symptoms? Is is appropriate to use H91.90?

Answer

Use code Z01.10 - it is not appropriate to use H91.90 once you know a person has normal hearing and also, that code is unspecified. Please refer to the AudiologyOnline course, ICD10: Effective Implementation in an Audiology Practice, for more in-depth information about the basics of ICD-10 for audiology practices.
